Weingut Hans Wirsching – Viticulture since 1630

Welcome to the Home of the Silvaner

„Franconia is our home and our identity. On the slopes of the Schwanberg, we accompany our vines as they bring heaven and earth together in their grapes, which are transformed into distinctive wines in the cellar.”

Drinking wine is more than a brief moment of pleasure, it is an attitude to life. Like music or art, wine is able to inspire, to surprise, to awaken joy. This attitude to life was already appreciated by our ancestors when they started growing wine in the 17th century. With passion and hard work, successive generations of the Wirsching family have succeeded in creating wines of special elegance, clarity and expressiveness, which today receive international awards.

We owe this success not only to our outstanding team, but also to the exceptional soils around the Schwanberg in Iphofen. Our almost 90 hectares of vineyards stand predominantly on gypsum keuper, which was formed in the lagoons of the dinosaur age and is full of plant minerals. This unique terroir shapes our wines with its herbaceousness and richness. This is especially true of our Silvaner wines, which have become our trademark and are typical of the Franconian region. In addition to the Silvaners, our Scheureben and Rieslings are also among the winery’s flagships – and with our innovative cuvées, wood barrel-aged Burgundy varieties and multi-award-winning sweet wines, we prove that there is much more to us.


We look forward to your visit!

Your Wirsching family.


The Iphöfer Julius-Echter-Berg. One of the most renowned vineyards in Franconia.

Press Reviews

“Nowhere is the density of excellent Silvaner greater than in Franconia. The vines are planted in the best locations and produce a dry white wine that goes excellently with food. State of the art are the bottlings of the Hans Wirsching winery in Iphofen.”
